I am thrilled to introduce my new fashion collection, an embodiment of my commitment to sustainability and the joy of creating unique pieces. Titled “Roots,” this collection goes beyond traditional fashion boundaries by embracing the concept of upcycling, breathing new life into materials with a rich history.
The entire collection is a testament to the transformative power of creativity. Woolen blankets have been artfully repurposed into stylish jackets, while discarded curtain scraps have been meticulously woven into a one-of-a-kind dress. Continuing my exploration of crochet, this collection showcases the craft in unexpected places, from knitted hoop earrings to intricate jacket finishing.
What sets this collection apart is the celebration of individuality. Some silhouettes are truly one of a kind, such as the crochet dress—a masterpiece crafted by deconstructing five blouses sourced from a second-hand store. It’s a homage to the roots of my artistic journey, a return to the joy of creating truly unique and meaningful pieces.
I believe that “Roots” is more than just a fashion collection; it’s a statement about the transformative potential within every piece of material and the joy of crafting something truly one-of-a-kind.
